Storm Season: Prepare Your Iowa Home
While we haven’t seen many severe storms yet, we have experienced some intense rain. As storms start to become more of a thing, it is crucial to make sure your home is not only free of damage but also storm ready. If you have not taken a look at the exterior part of your home or took some time to maintain the outside, it is crucial you get outside ASAP to evaluate the exterior part of your home. We have created a storm season checklist to go over to make sure your home is ready for the summer storms Iowa faces.
Storm Season Checklist
Have your roof inspected by a professional to make sure that you don’t have torn, damaged, or missing shingles.
Trim trees and branches at least 3 feet away from the roof surface to avoid damage to your shingles and potentially to the structure of your roof.
Make sure your gutters are cleared of all leaves, branches, and debris. If you are looking for a maintenance-free solution, consider getting LeafGuard® Gutters installed on your home.
Prepare your storm shelter and review your family’s emergency plans now.
Review your home and business owner’s insurance policies to make sure that your coverages are in tiptop shape before the storm.
